In Topic: 2019 Hay Bale Pepper Patch

Yesterday, 08:49 PM

I started building a new shit sandwich to serve to the garden the next year. I actually started it three weeks ago with the grass clippings from the far front yard, horse poo and the last of my conveniently procured oak leaves for the year.


I let the grass go three weeks before cutting it yesterday and scored a big pile of stuff. About 2 yards of very finely chopped hay. I mow and throw to the middle so it's cut and recut many times over. Made for a big pile. My fertilizer guy Cadi eats his fill but that's only fair since he provides the rest of the mixture. I think it will make some good compost. The pile appears to be blessed by light beams from above :surprised:

Just like trimming the hedges... ;)


Incredible growth there buddy!


The aerial growth shot from this week looks nicer with some air between the rows. I considered bringing out a hedge trimmer but did it the old fashioned way with shears. This will be yet another ongoing addition to my picking routine. Pick a pod, pull a weed, trim a branch. Will only thicken the impenetrable mass and make picking even more difficult but at least I'll be able to move through there without breaking stuff.

Damn, like the lowlands of the 'Nam...Watch for Mr. Two-Step....hangin' in the canopy....


No Mr. Two-Step around here but I definitely watch for Mr Eastern Diamondback. I've never seen one of them up a tree but I know they climb. One was up in the rafters in an open pole barn and fell onto the windshield of one of my cars. Screwed him up bigtime. He had a prolapsed cloaca, went septic and died before  I could find a vet (or anyone else) who had the stones to help me fix him. I was at least one hand short for doing the job of tubing him, holding him, stuffing his insides back inside and putting in a stitch. A shame.

I'm clearing the jungle roads. Slow because it rains everyday but I'm getting there.


I put a lot of plant on the floor this morning. Gotta get that out and shred it for the compost.

Sorry you're out of plants but I'm happy the moving is finished and you're safe and secure.
